               Overview and Program Info for Judas Maccabaeus

 

If you’d like some one-on-one with your notes in the various choruses, here’s how to do it.
Go to http://cyberbass.org/Major_Works/Handel_GF/handel_Judas_Maccabaeus.htm

Once there, you will see all the chorus movements by name (note that the numbers there may not match the movement numbers in our scores).  To the right of each movement, you can select your favorite vocal part, or listen to the ensemble version (“tutti”).  Clicking on a part should start it playing.  The line below Part I allows you to stop/start/pick position within the track that is playing.

Below the playback line, there is set of clickable boxes that will let you slow down (or speed up for the masochists among us!) the playback rate, by 10% or so per click, or jump backwards (or forwards) by 3 or 10 seconds per click.

The playback is rather pedantic - little change in volume or note duration nuance.  Make sure you have Tim’s markings in your score, which take precedence!!

Don’t be surprised at an occasional “wrong” note - as I have found in other of the pieces featured on CyberBass, there are occasional clearly wrong notes.  Some of those may be “typos,” but I wouldn’t be surprised if some are intentional, to catch possible bootleggers!
